Ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling — whose video game company filed for bankruptcy last year, is selling off household items like furniture, clothing, and even a microwave from his Medfield home on Saturday.
Schilling has been selling off assets since his Rhode Island-based 38 Studios failed. The company received a $75 million loan guarantee from Rhode Island in 2010, and Schilling is now named in a lawsuit brought by the state’s economic development agency over the collapse of the firm. Schilling has called the claims baseless and the suit political, according to an Associated Press report.
Schilling has said he invested as much as $50 million in 38 Studios and has lost all the money earned over his 20-year baseball career.
Here’s a look at some of the items Schilling is seeking to sell, and what he’s given up since his business venture failed.

Consignworks Inc. is handling the estate sale for the Schillings. The sale is being held at the Schilling’s home in Medfield from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
“Downsizing is a part of life and we are honored the Schillings chose Consignworks to simplify this process for them,’’ the company said.
“Kingdoms of Amular: Reckoning’’ was the first video game developed by 38 Studios. It was released in February 2012 and received positive reviews. The game, however, did not succeed financially.

Other items for sale include DVDs, copies of Shonda Schilling’s book, “The Best Kind of Different,’’ which is about the couple’s son with Asperger’s syndrome, and artificial plants.
The furniture to be sold include formal pieces, bedroom furnishings, and items for children.
Earlier this year, Schilling auctioned off the bloody sock he wore in the 2004 World Series while pitching on an injured ankle. The proceeds of the sale were intended to cover personal loan guarantees to 38 Studios. The sale price was $92,613, which was less than expected.
The Schilling’s home is still on the market, according to the AP. The home is listed for $3 million and includes a heated eight-car garage, a batting/pitching cage, putting green, and wine room. Schilling purchased the home from former New England Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe for $4.5 million.
